Oceania Exclusive Tour

For those travelers who prefer an added measure of intimacy and flexibility, we are pleased to offer our new Oceania Exclusive tours. With a minimum of 10 guests and a maximum capacity of just 16 guests, each tour benefits from a higher level of personal attention and the added flexibility and agility that come from traveling in a small group.

Oceania Exclusive tours are available for a specially selected number of tours in almost every port we visit, in every corner of the world.

This town of Concarneau is comprised of two distinctly different sections. The modern area of the town is situated on the mainland, while the medieval Ville Close, rests on an island in the center of the harbor. This lovely half-day excursion focuses on the well-preserved, walled old town of Concarneau.

Though small, this fortification was the cradle of Concarneau's early history and was recognized in the writings of French author Gustave Flaubert who wrote, "...a wall whose base is battered by waves at high tide...Machicolation is still intact, exactly as it was in Queen Anne' s day..." The town was also the setting for the 1931 novel "Le chien Jaune (The Yellow Dog), by noted Belgian author Georges Simenon.

Upon arrival, you will enjoy a guided walking tour that highlights many of the interesting and historical sites of "Ville Close." As you stroll along the ancient streets, you will soon see for yourself why this exquisite section of the city is one of the most photographed in Brittany.

Following your guided tour, you will have the opportunity to further explore on your own before it's time to travel back to your waiting ship in Lorient.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 1 1/4 hours of moderate walking, much of it over cobblestone and uneven surfaces. There are also a few steps to negotiate. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and not considered suitable for those with mobility concerns. Weather appropriate clothing; flat, comfortable walking shoes, a hat and sunglasses are recommended. The order of the sites viewed or visited may vary.
